Food was wonderful and they had some really neat craft cocktails! Our only complaint was kind of slow service, but other than that we had a great experience.

The menu has something to satisfy every taste! We had pizza. Chicken fried steak, fish & chips, burgers. Fish tacos, salmon and more! The drink menu is quite extensive as well. The s'mores brownie dessert was sinfully delicious!

A friend and I had dinner before going to a show at the Holland Center. Our server was great - friendly, helpful, and efficient. Last time I ate here it seemed really loud, this time seemed better. I had the pot roast and my friend had the raspberry chicken - both were delicious. Love the beer bread, too!

It was Mother’s Day- one of the busiest days of the year. We were able to get a reservation just 3 days earlier and were seated immediately upon arrival. The hostess was extremely friendly and our waiter was very attentive. The brunch Buffett was amazing with a huge variety to choose from. Even had made to order omelets included! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

We had the most delicious Mother's Day brunch. The food was high quality and a wide variety. We found plenty of options for my children, including the one with food allergies. Service was top notch. There was a line for the buffet initially, but we knew that before getting in it, so no surprise, everyone wanted the delicious looking and smelling food. We will be back!

We had reservations for Mother’s Day brunch at 1015 and were seated promptly. The place was packed. It was an all you can eat buffet. I have to say it was the best brunch food we have ever had! It was absolutely delicious! Our server took our orders for omelets, and brought them to us when they were ready. They were the best omelets as well. We will be making this a part of our regular Sunday brunch outings.

I have long been a fan of Upstream but was quite disappointed this last trip. I took my daughter before a concert and had a reservation so we got right it. Our server was prompt to come get drink orders and put appetizers arrived quickly. However, my daughter struggled to find something on the menu to eat so we asked about getting a kids menu...something we ask for often because my kids are plain eaters. The response was...is she 12? It is obvious she is not since she is 18. Then proceeded to tell is there would be an upcharge which I said was fine. We never received a kids menu. I also asked if the kitchen could still make the Greek Pizza, which is no longer on the menu. (They still have the Greek salad so I am confident the ingredients were available). The quick response was no. We finally ordered and it took a good amount o led time to receive my salad that was obviously prepared earlier in the day as evidenced by the witty non-crisp greens. While the food we did select was just fine, I felt like they were churning and burning on their tables resulting in not the best experience. Given all the options of great places to eat in Omaha and the Old Market specifically, Upstream needs to up their game to keep their I Only remaining location on the map.

The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Our waitress was amazing! The menu offers a nice variety of options. Our food was served in a timely manner and everything came out beautifully displayed and was delicious! One thing to note is that the entree portions are huge! The good thing is you can always take some home for later, if you can't eat it all. I would highly recommend Upstream in the Old Market.

Disappointed in Easter brunch, some food was good, some either cold or tasteless. They use to do a beef rib roast, but now its a sirloin and when we were there, cooked good, but very chewy.
Recommend for weekly lunch or dinner, but buffet has gone downhill. And parking across street was $11.

We thought the food was good. The price on their website for the Easter Buffet was $16.99 but, once we got there the price was $21.99. The buffet was kept well stocked and the service was very good.

I don't know that I would recommend. This was a favorite spot for my mom, but when it became her favorite, they had different items each time we went - now, it's all the same things, everytime. The value is not good - most items are not homemade (i.e. powdered eggs, premade (hard) biscuits, gravy, chicken parm...and the prime rib is as well done as well dne can be - do not eat if you have TMJ as it is very tough. Considering most items cam off the sysco truck and required no talent/experience to reheat, and not so much as a coffee or OJ in included in the price, it's expensive for what it is...and what it is, isn't that special.

The roasted beet salad, sangria, and apple crisp were all delicious. The salad was better than any other offered at local restaurants.
The service was excellent and we enjoyed atmosphere. It is accessible by wheelchair. Outdoor seating is available.

Food was great but a couple of our orders did not get entered in the system apparently so my son had to wait for his meal. He had to eat after we all had already eaten our meals. If the food wasn't so good I might not go back.
